Field of Activity

The French start-up nextProtein uses black soldier fly larvae to convert food & agriculture by-products into ingredients for animal feed with the objective of accelerating the advent of sustainable agriculture.

nextProtein uses European Union-approved biowaste and propriety technologies to farm black soldier fly larvae and produce components to be valorized into animal proteins, particularly for the rapidly-growing aquaculture industry. The purpose of this more sustainable food production model is to furnish a response to the predicted worldwide shortage of proteinaceous nutrition while protecting oceans, reducing food waste and contributing to the circular economy.

In 2020 nextProtein obtained €10.2 in Series A financing to increase production and continue innovating in the sector. The start-up is furthermore the first company in its sector to receive EU-wide marketing authorization for its products produced outside of European borders.

The company’s 2025 objective is to increase its production capacity to 100,000 metric tons, i.e., approximately 10% of the worldwide insect protein market.
